    Highway Mapping and Data Compilation

    Compile all DTM Features and digitize all plannimetric features

    Background & Objectives
    Our client is a leading GIS Services company offering expertise for major development projects and has expertise in topography, photogrammetry, geomatics and land law. They have worked extensively on projects in the Water and Wastewater, Urban Planning, Utilities and Transportation sectors. They work closely with several organizations in France and Europe and some of their clients include Institute Geographic National of France, Ordnance Survey in U.K., etc.

    Key Aspect of the Project
    The key objective of this project was to compile all DTM Features and digitizing all plannimetric features with respect to 1:1000 stereo plotting scale. The data so compiled would be used as a base platform for the future development of the highway and to plan the urban and rural development for the terrain connected to the highway.

    Services Rendered and Methodology
    The client's requirements from this project was

    • Compilation of DTM features 
    • Digitization of all Plannimetric features.
    • 1mtr Manual Contour
